Applications to the Solve 2017 Global Challenges are due on August 1 by 5pm U.S. Eastern Time. Any solutions not posted by the deadline will not be considered.

Here are steps you can take to post a solution today: 

Step 1: Log in or create an account at

Step 2: Fill in all the required information to submit a solution to one of our challenges. The only application questions required for submission can be found on the “Select A Challenge” page and the “Basic Information” page. While we’ll consider all information in your application during the judging process, nothing after those pages is required to post your solution application.

Step 3: Post your solution. You must click “Post My Solution” in your user dashboard for your solution to be considered for one of the Solve 2017 Global Challenges. This button will only appear once all of the required questions are completed.

Post Your Solution
Important: This is the "Post My Solution" button in your user dashboard that you must click for your solution to be considered for one of the Solve 2017 Global Challenges.

Remember that you can go back and edit your solution any time up until the deadline. But if you haven’t submitted your solution at all, we can’t consider it!

Submit your solution today. If you're selected as a finalist, you'll get to join us in New York City for the Solve Challenge Finals on September 17 during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Week.
